Higginbotham will specifically discuss an important first step: evaluating a service environment to consider stresses imposed the components of a coating system.

The webinar will analyze how the proper protective coating system—generally a primer, an intermediate coat and a topcoat, all of which are designed by manufacturers as suitable components for most endeavorscan help to ensure SSPC coating standards are met.

Higginbotham will specifically discuss an important first step: evaluating a service environment to consider stresses imposed the components of a coating system. Once that is gauged, properties for optimum coating performance can be resolved.
